darkend rear lights

Postby greenmachine » Mon Nov 21, 2011 11:39 pm

Looking for the darker rear lights which seem to be factory tinted. I have a pair of minty mint clear ones that I'd be willing to swap.

These are what I'm after:

Yeah I know, had the on my other gun metal grey altezza before and have a white one now and think the darker would suit down to the ground.

havn't thought about painting, have you any pics of your ones?

if you go down the tinting route be careful not too put too much tinting on as too much depending where you live would reduce the light output and cause the car to fail on mot and even get pulled up by the police I know as happened to me in my younger days :roll:

Jesus there jet black. I like your ones, very similar to what i'm after... Just painted the inners a shade of black? matt by any chance?

Don't think I'd go the tint routine, i thought about it alright...

semi matt black closer to the oem front light's :wink: , was thinking of changing them though, doing something a bit different :twisted: got all light's to match as I bought the car with black oem front light's and side repeaters so sprayed the rear's to match even down to texture would say 80% match and colour would say around 95%
I was after the original one's you wanted but decided they wouldn't match up very well and would end up spraying them or selling them on
